Value of aid paid to hotels and accommodation - nearly BGN 150 million.

As a result of the measures, in the first quarter of 2022 tourism reached a level of 82% compared to the pre-pandemic period.  The growth of Bulgarian and foreign tourists is about 48%, while the growth of foreign tourists alone is about 2.9 times.
